Just bought this dresser at an antique mall. It has wooden casters attached by metal. The casters are not perfectly round, but that would be expected if it has been moved much no matter the age. It appears to be machine made and put together by hand. It has been refinished. Not sure when or how long ago. Also unsure of type of wood. The only identifying mark is on the back no 116. The dovetails are not even, but may have been machine made?? There are wooden pegs guiding the drawers but no drawer tracks. It appears it had a mirror at one time that is now gone.
Any thoughts as to how old? I assume it is American made. It is really a great piece, does have some damage, but nothing too major. Also what type of polish is safe to use on it to keep it nice (assuming it is old and not a very well done fake).
thanks for your help. I have more pics I can post. I have pics of the casters to if that is helpful.
